Welcome to the first annual Minnesota Triathlon! We will be offering two adult race distances and a kid's option. Our Sprint course features a .25 mile swim, 17.3 mile bike and 5k (3.1 mile) run. Our Olympic Course is exactly that; a 1.5K (.93 mile) swim, 40K (24.8 mile) bike and 10K (6.2 mile) run. Kid's race distances to be decided.

Located at Antlers Park in Lakeville, MN
Swim – The swim will be either .25 mile or .93 mile counter-clockwise course, leaving from the sandy shores of Antlers Park. The course will be well marked and easy to follow. Water temps in mid August are normally a comfortable 78 degrees, but wetsuits are legal. In the event that water is 78-84, wetsuits are permitted, but the racer will not be eligible for awards. If water temps are over 84 degrees wetsuits are not permitted.
Bike – The bike course (which runs clockwise) will be a great improvement over years past. 75% of the course features huge shoulders on which to bike. The course rolls gently through the countryside and should be FAST! Sprint distance racers will travel 18.2 miles and Olympic distance racers will go 25.8 miles. All cyclists must observe MN traffic laws. ANSI or SNELL approved hard-shelled helmets are required. Drafting is prohibited.
Run – The run (which runs counterclockwise) will be tweaked slightly over years past. We will still predominately be in the northern neighborhood, but will head a little further up Hwy 50. This will allow our Sprint distance racers to complete a single loop (3.1 miles) and our Olympic distance competitors will do the loop twice (6.2 miles). We will run counterclockwise and have mile markers throughout the course.
Please note: The use of headphones during any part of the race is strictly prohibited.
